Fabregas never considered United offer

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas insists no amount of money could have lured him to Manchester United in the summer, revealing he has never considered leaving the Spanish club.

Fabregas was one of United's failed targets in the transfer window, with the English champions having two bids for the playmaker rejected.

Reports suggested the 26-year-old was hoping to leave the Camp Nou due to the competition for places, but Fabregas denies he would have been tempted to join United if his wages were significantly increased.

"I would not have moved for double the money. Nor triple. No," he is quoted in the Sun. "I've paid out of my own pocket a lot of money to play for Barca, I earned more at Arsenal.

"There are dreams and this was mine since I was a child. United never spoke with me. Obviously when a club wants you they have to do it with the club and they don't necessarily have to speak to the player.

"I always said that I hadn’t spoken to anyone -- and the only thing in my head was to be a success at Barcelona. The truth is United made official offers and it became known in public. I know there are other places where they give you more money. But at no time did I think of leaving."
